Barrymore long had been interested in headlining a daytime talker. She started conversations with Warner Bros. in 2016 for a syndicated talk show, but the project never moved forward. (Deadline)

Should the show move forward, it would join a line-up of new and upcoming daytime talk shows, which includes projects hosted by Kelly Clarkson, Meredith Vieira, Tamron Hall and Jerry Springer. (TheWrap)
